Dames: Portraits by Norman Sunshine

Nov. 2, 2015-Jan. 31, 2016
Boca Raton Museum of Art

The human figure has captivated Norman Sunshine for much of his artistic career. In decades past he painted grand canvases of quiet moments between multiple figures, capturing the great and small episodes of life.

During a period of convalescence when he could not paint as he once was able to do, Sunshine delved into the digital world of art making and searched for subjects of style and substance. In doing so he was taken with “women of a certain age;” their poise, their composure, and their self-assurance. Among those who have posed for him are art patron Agnes Gund, philanthropist Nancy Kissinger, and Anne Sutherland Fuchs, former publisher of Vogue, Woman’s Day, and Elle.
